New Delhi: The IPL Governing Council on Tuesday announced that it has requested Arun Jaitley to chair and conduct a fresh hearing into the conduct of banned Rajasthan Royals player Ravindra Jadeja.
Earlier in February, the IPL Governing Council had, based on a unanimous decision and on instructions from the President of the BCCI, banned Jadeja for one year.
The ban was on account of Jadeja reportedly not signing the renewal contract with the Rajasthan Royals and instead, attempting to negotiate a larger financial contract with Mumbai Indians.
Lalit Modi on Tuesday stated, “The IPL Governing Council has taken a decision to hear Ravindra Jadeja’s plea and will also listen to representations from the two franchises involved, namely the Rajasthan Royals and the Mumbai Indians.
Arun Jaitley will at the behest of the IPL Governing Council chair the hearing and arrive at a final decision on Ravindra Jadeja and the same shall be binding on all parties concerned.”
